SharePoint Consultant, SharePoint Developer
What is SharePoint and what is SharePoint used for?
Microsoft SharePoint can be used for a number of things inside a business or organisation. The most common use of SharePoint is to store documents and files. SharePoint stores these in the cloud so that all of your employees can access them from any location, rather than having to be inside your office or network. SharePoint lets businesses grant and restrict access to different files and folders. You can make sure that employees only see what they needs to see. SharePoint can also be used as an Intranet. An Intranet is a website for your employees. The main purpose of an Intranet is to make your team more efficient and informed. An Intranet should give your employees all the resources they need to do their job effectively. No more hunting around for the latest version of a template or policy. Procedures and policy document are two of the most commonly found items in an Intranet.
What does a SharePoint consultant or SharePoint developer do?
SharePoint consultants and SharePoint developers can help businesses and organisations evaluate the effectiveness of their current Intranet, migrate their old Intranet to the latest version of SharePoint or identify how your business could benefit from using SharePoint.
Is SharePoint free?
At the time of this writing, SharePoint is part of your Microsoft 365 Business Basic licenses and above. A great many businesses will have this license or a higher one. There are commercial add-ons (called web parts) that can be purchased if required.
Is SharePoint easy to learn?
The latest version of SharePoint (SharePoint online) is much more user friendly than older versions of SharePoint.

What people are saying
I’ve worked with Calum a lot and he’s a real pleasure to work with. He’s very focused on finding the best possible solution which is really refreshing - certainly not a one-size-fits all. I really appreciated his professionalism, quick response to all queries, and ability to actively seek to understand what we were trying to achieve. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a clear pathway forward in relation to their website and software.

Calum and the team at Converge Design did a fantastic job of implementing the new "look and feel" of our website. It was a pleasure working with Calum and I found the process seamless with great communication throughout the project. I look forward to working with Calum and his team on any other future web projects.
